Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֱלִישָׁה [Elishah], pr.n. of a region situated on the Mediterranean Sea, whence purple was brought to Tyre, Genesis 10:4; Ezekiel 27:7. Elis is to be understood (comp. the Samaritan copy, in which, the ה being omitted, it is written אליש). The name of this place appears to have been applied by the Hebrews to the whole Peloponnesus, as the names of provinces, especially when remote, are very often applied to whole countries; comp. יָוָן. As to the purple not only found in Laconia (Her. Od. ii. 18, 7), but also in the gulf of Corinth, and in the islands of the Ægean sea, see Bochart, Phaleg. iii. 4. Others explain אלישה by Hellas, Greece; see Michaëlis, Spicil. Geogr. Hebr. t.i. p. 78.
